Foreword 



One of the main purposes of the Mennonite Yearbook is to 
provide a statistical account and record of our denomination. 
The Yearbook is unique in its Ministerial Directory which 
serves as a directory of ordained men for Mennonite bodies 
in all parts of the world. 

Each year the Yearbook acquaints our people with the 
changes and progress in the various areas of the activities of 
the Mennonite Church. Personnel is constantly changing in 
our missions, organizations, and institutions. New activities 
are being added to the total work of the church. The member- 
ship of the church along with enrollments in Christian educa- 
tional agencies continues to show statistical increases. Through 
a study of the comparative statistics in the Statistical Section, 
one can note the various trends. 

The Yearbook as a statistical presentation of the church 
at work emphasizes that back of the statistics are consecrated 
Christian men and women active in the greatest task in the 
world— giving the Gospel to the lost world. 

As we carefully peruse the pages of the 1952 Mennonite 
Yearbook we shall find ourselves impelled to thank God that 
we have the privilege to share in the task of sharing the Gospel 
with the unsaved about us and in foreign lands. 

Again we are most grateful to all officials and others who 
have provided information for this issue. We trust that the 
1952 Mennonite Yearbook will be more serviceable to the 
church than ever before.

Mennonite General Conference 

Paul Mininger, Moderator 



General Conference in 1951 

"The Living Church in the World Today" was 
the theme of the Mennonite General Conference held 
at Goshen College, Goshen, Ind., August 22-24, 1951. 
The sessions of the Conference were characterized 
by an earnest devotion to Jesus Christ as Lord and 
Head of the church. There was an evident desire 
on the part of the entire Conference body to follow 
the guidance of the Holy Spirit in solving the per- 
plexing and difficult problems that are confronting 
the church today. The addresses delivered at the 
Conference were of unusually high quality. 

One of the significant actions that was taken was 
the revision of the 1937 statement of the General 
Conference on Peace, War and Military Service. 
This revised statement is entitled A Declaration of 
Christian Faith and Commitment with Respect to 
Peace, War, and Nonresistance. It deserves a care- 
ful reading and study by every member of the 
church and should be widely distributed as a wit- 
ness to our faith among those who do not share 
our conviction. 

The Conference decided to establish a "Minis- 
terial Committee" as a standing committee of Gen- 
eral Conference. Its purpose is to give guidance to 
conferences and congregations in policies and stand- 
ards relative to the work of the ministry in their 
service to the Church. 

The Life Insurance Study Committee gave a 
thorough report on its study of the ethical impli- 
cations of life insurance. There was a lengthy dis- 
cussion of the report and the committee was retained 
to continue its work and bring back recommenda- 
tions to the next General Conference. 

A plan was approved to simplify the financial 
program of General Conference by having a unified 
budget for all committees operating under General 
Conference. Under this plan the General Conference 
treasurer will present the total financial needs to the 
churches rather than having a number of committees 
each making its own appeal for funds. 

Work of the General Council 

The General Conference has now operated for 
two years under the revised constitution which pro- 
vides for a General Council. During these two 
years, under the direction of Oscar Burkholder, Mod- 
erator, the General Council has begun to find its 
place in the work of the church. This body meets 
semiannually to carry on the work that has been 
assigned to it. The membership on the General 
Council consists of one representative from each 
district conference which is eligible for membership 
in General Conference, one representative from each 
general board in the church, and one representative 
from each standing committee or commission of 
General Conference. The members of the Execu- 
tive Committee of General Conference are members 
of the General Council, and the Executive Committee 
serves as a steering committee for the General 
Council. At the present time all district conferences, 
which are eligible for membership in the General 




Pcrul Mininger, Elected Moderator 1951 



Council, with the exception of one, are participating 
in its work. 

On December 7 and 8 the General Council had 
its fall meeting in Chicago. Following the pattern 
set during the first two years, adequate time was 
taken at the beginning of each session for Bible 
study and prayer to prepare the members of the 
Council for the discussion and decisions that would 
need to be made later. 

One of the functions of the General Council is 
to give opportunity for committees and boards of 
the church to take counsel from a representative 
group of church leaders. The Peace Problems Com- 
mittee brought certain of its concerns to the General 
Council at the last meeting. The General Council 
approved the plans of the Peace Problems Commit- 
tee for meeting the needs of the young men who 
are subject to the present draft law. 

The Budget and Finance Committee brought its 
first report to the General Council. A budget was 
adopted and plans were approved for raising funds 
necessary for the current year. 

The Committee on Co-ordination of Church Pro- 
gram reported its plans for presenting the over-all 
program and needs of the general church agencies. 
This unified picture of the total church-wide pro- 
gram will be presented through a monthly release 
in the Gospel Herald, a printed pamphlet and a 
poster for distribution to local congregations, and by 
visits to district conference meetings by representa- 
tives from the church-wide organizations.

It is also the purpose of the General Council to 
provide opportunity for church organizations and 
committees having common problems to work at 
them co-operatively. An illustration of this type of 
work which the General Council does is seen in the 
report of the Committee on Audio-Visual Aids which 
was given at the fall meeting of the General Council. 
The Board of Education faced the problem of using 
audio-visual aids in Christian schools. The Com- 
mission for Christian Education and Young People's 
Work was concerned with the extent to which visual 
aids should be encouraged in the local churches. 
The Mennonite Board of Missions and Charities has 
used visual aids on the foreign mission field and 
also in bringing missionary information to the peo- 
ple in the home churches. The Mennonite Pub- 
lishing House is prepared to sell equipment and 
materials which are useful in the work of the church. 
The General Council provided an opportunity for 
these organizations to co-operate in the study of 
this problem. 

The increasing interest in lay activity in the church 
and particularly in lay evangelism, has resulted in 
the Mennonite General Conference asking the Gen- 
eral Council to determine where responsibility for 
guidance and directions of this work should be 
placed. This matter will be given thoughtful con- 
sideration during the next year. 

The General Council is sponsoring a Study Con- 
ference on Prophecy in the spring of 1952. 

Plans are already under way for the next Gen- 



eral Conference to be held August 26-30, 1953. The 
first two days will be devoted to business and will 
be primarily for delegates and the ministry. These 
business sessions will then be followed by three days 
of conference which will be planned for the in- 
spiration and instruction of the entire membership 
of the church. Arrangements will be made to enter- 
tain the large crowds of people who will be expected 
to attend from all parts of the United States and 
Canada. No decision has yet been made as to the 
place where these meetings will be held. 

The General Council expressed its concern that 
the church do all that it can to keep in touch with 
the young men of the church who have entered the 
armed forces of the country. Although it was felt 
that this is primarily the responsibility of the local 
congregation, the Peace Problems Committee was 
asked to give consideration to the possibility of its 
rendering some service in this area. 

The work described above indicates something of 
the nature and scope of the work of the Mennonite 
General Conference and its General Council. This 
organization is a concrete expression of the fellow- 
ship and unity that exists among us. It is a tool 
for the church to use in carrying out the total task 
which has been given her by Jesus Christ. It is the 
concern and prayer of all those who carry the re- 
sponsibility of Mennonite General Conference that 
it may help the church to remain loyal to her living 
Lord.

Fifth Mennonite World Conference 

Paul Erb 



An event of importance in 1952 to Mennonites 
everywhere will be the Fifth Mennonite World Con- 
ference, to be held near Basel, Switzerland, August 
10-15. Attending will be 200 delegates from a num- 
ber of countries. Many who are not delegates will 
also be there. The sessions will be held at St. 
Chrischona, beautifully located within sight of the 
snowcapped Alps. The buildings are ample for tak- 
ing care of a considerable group. 

This conference is not an official body, and it 
has no jurisdiction over participating groups. But 
it is expected to be helpful, as previous conferences 
of the kind have been, through its interchange of 
views and in the expression of conviction on the 
various interests of Mennonites throughout the 
world. There will be speeches and discussions on 
various phases of the life and work of the church. 
All delegates will be able to understand what is 
going on, for although German will be the official 
language of the conference, it is expected that there 
will be facilities for immediate translation through 
earphones. 



Mennonite General Conference at its session in 
August, 1951, at Goshen, Ind., approved a plan for 
certifying as many as fifty delegates from the branch 
of the church which that conference largely repre- 
sents. At this writing it seems probable that this 
quota will be nearly filled. Most of our conferences 
and church-wide boards and committees will be 
represented. 

Travel arrangements are being made by the Ben- 
der Travel Agency and Menno Travel Service. The 
larger number of our delegates will sail for Europe 
on the Queen Mary on July 30, and return on the 
Georgia early in September. After the conference 
there will be conducted tours through Europe and 
to Palestine. Mission board, relief, and publica- 
tion officials will be studying conditions that bear 
upon their work. Many of our church leaders will 
be making contacts on an unusual scale this summer. 
There will be many opportunities for testimony and 
witness. May God's blessing be upon the seed sown.

Mennonite Board of Missions and Charities 

John H. Mosemann, President 



Throughout the past year the Mennonite Board 
of Missions and Charities has again enjoyed abun- 
dant blessing and guidance of the heavenly Father 
who Himself is the founder and director of all tbe 
church's outreach program. Throughout the year 
this awareness that our work is the work of God 
for which He must supply direction and resources 
has been constantly upon us. Man can never replace 
God. He can only respond to the invitations the 
Almighty has extended for us to be His fellow 
workers. 

Foreign Missions 

We have in a sense during the past year had to 
shrink our foreign mission ministry. It is with greal 
gratitude that we have witnessed the home-coming of 
all of our workers of the China field after some 
months of anxious waiting. All of these workers have 
benefited greatly by their return to a freedom which 
was so long denied them in their later experience in 
China. It has been our joy to see new workers 
sent out to each of our other foreign fields. The in- 
crease is not large but it is gratifying that there is 
the constant stream of available personnel to staff our 
various efforts throughout the world. 

From each of the fields there is gratifying news of 
advance in one way or another. The church in the 
older fields struggles to maturity seeking to de- 
velop its own powers of guidance and support. 
While there is a great deal yet to be desired, 
the efforts and struggles which are known best to 
those involved in them are gratifying to behold. 

Home Missions 

In the advance of the church in the home field 
it is also cause for gratitude that several of our city 
churches are moving closer to the ideal of self-support 
and maintenance. We are very grateful for such 
progress and covet it in the case of each of our 
established fields of witness in the city. We have 
added two city fields among the Negro population— 
the one in Saginaw, Mich., the other in Cleveland. 
Ohio. Both these efforts were initiated by relatively 
small congregations who carried through a long and 
exacting preliminary labor which well validated the 
decision for the Board to assume responsibility in 
these areas. The additions to the church in both 
these new fields is, we trust, indicative of a healthful 
and normal growth which shall characterize their 
future life and witness. 

During the year, too, we have decided to expand 
our facilities in two other of our city missions. Both 
of these are in Chicago. For the Mexican witness 
there we are remodeling the property which the 
Board has held for some time in order to utilize its 
facilities for worship and instructional purposes. 
For our Negro witness in Chicago we have felt 
it important that we so establish ourselves as to 
command the respect and the response of the Negro 
people of that city. We are fortunate in being in- 
vited to establish our new center for Negroes in the 
midst of a prospective new housing unit which will 
mean a great deal for our strategic contact with these 
people. 



Other cities are also open to the Gospel and we 
cannot but pray the Lord of the harvest that He 
will provide both laborers and divine leading as to 
the planting of the Gospel in other cities of our home 
land. 

During the past year our Board Treasurer has set 
up a new scheme of financing and reporting the 
work of our city missions. Our city workers have been 
very co-operative in fitting into this new arrangement 
and it is quite apparent that we are making progress 
in the handling of our city mission plants. Sup- 
port shares are now available for our workers at 
home as w'ell as those in the foreign fields and it has 
been gratifying to have our church respond by taking 
up these supports. 

Charitable Institutions 

This area of our program has the good counsel and 
general guidance of the Child Welfare Committee. 
Progress has been made in the renovation of our 
West Liberty Children's Home and in Kansas City 
we now have available for our superintendent a 
desirable dwelling which will make for better opera- 
tion in that institution. During the past summer 
Mennonite Youth Village again made its very vital 
contribution to the life of many underprivileged 
boys and girls. Besides this it has given a sizeable 
number of young people an opportunity to come close 
to the needs of boys and girls and thus broaden their 
own vision and liability to call to serve in this im- 
portant ministry. 

The ministry to the aged as well as the hospital 
efforts are continuing in much the same scope as 
heretofore. Through these avenues a great number 
of persons have opportunities to express their 
Christian love and concern to others and those who 
are the recipients of this Christian service are con- 
fronted by tangible evidences of the practical bearing 
of Christianity on life. These services should be con- 
sidered as far above mere charity. They are designed 
to make life liveable and desirable for people who 
otherwise would have a difficult road to go. 

Publicity 

In the past year we have transferred our publicity 
office from Scottdale to Elkhart. This makes it 
possible to tie in very much more closely with our 
Secretary's office the total publicity program for our 
Board. We have had to expand both our facilities 
and personnel to carry this extra assignment at 
Elkhart. The new arrangement has been working out 
very satisfactorily. It is quite obvious that if our peo- 
ple are expected to rally to the support of the mis- 
sionary program they will need to receive adequate 
information and stimulus from the fields so that 
there might be a basis of conviction for all the 
giving and praying that is required to make our 
Gospel ministry effective. 

Looking Ahead 
We are constantly reminded that the work of the 
church and of the kingdom of God dare at no time 
and place become static. With the increase of world 
tensions and unalleviated needs on a global scale the 



8 



1952 MENNONITE YEARBOOK AND DIRECTORY 



church must become increasingly sensitive and re- 
sponsive to the challenges that pour in from every 
side. This requires, of course, a fresh survey of the 
field which is the world. It requires that we should 
seek out the mind and will of God in order that we 
might be directed in a forward expanding move- 
ment for the honor of His name. It requires, too, 
that our constituency must be informed and alive 
to the growing needs and the growing demands for 
support of the Lord's work. 



In the future, therefore, we are bound to look in 
these two directions— we must look to God above all 
for the day-by-day counsel and direction which is 
His alone to give and we must look to the church to 
furnish concretely that which God requires for the 
maintenance and extension of the work of His king- 
dom. With confidence in both we launch ahead for 
the new year, casting our bread upon the waters 
knowing that it shall be found even if after many 
days. Goshen, Ind. 



Mennonite Relief Committee 

Levi C. Hartzler, Secretary for Service and Relief 



Beginning of MRC 

The Mennonite Relief Committee was organized 
during Christmas week of 1917 as the Mennonite 
Relief Commission for War Sufferers at a missionary 
conference at the Forks Church near Middlebury, 
Ind. The Commission was composed of representa- 
tives from the various district conferences through- 
out the church and carried on relief work first among 
European war sufferers and later among war refu- 
gees in the Near East. In 1920 it co-operated with 
relief agencies of other Mennonite groups in organ- 
izing the Mennonite Central Committee to carry on 
Russian famine relief and give aid to Russian Men- 
nonite refugees. 

The original constitution contained a provision 
that the Commission should be dissolved when the 
purpose for its organization had been fulfilled. 
Therefore, at the 1925 annual meeting of the Com- 
mission, a recommendation was passed calling on 
the Mennonite Board of Missions and Charities to 
make the Commission a standing committee of the 
Board because of the close relationship between re- 
lief work and missions. The Board acted favorably 
on that recommendation at the 1926 annual meeting 
and changed the name to the Mennonite Relief 
Committee. Since that time MRC has been elected 
annually by the Board. 

MRC is responsible for organizing relief and serv- 
ice activities under the Board, co-operating with 
MCC in the all-Mennonite program, and collecting 
and soliciting all funds from the Mennonite Board 
of Missions and Charities constituency for relief, 
refugee rehabilitation, and voluntary service. Since 
1949 a full-time secretary has directed the work of 
the Committee. During 1951 the office staff was en- 
larged by the addition of an administrative assistant 
in the relief and service office, Dorsa Mishler. Don 
Snapp also served part of the year in the area of 
summer service, and was appointed as full-time staff 
assistant as of September 1. 

Relief 

The Ethiopian relief program, begun in 1945 and 
1946, was turned over to the Eastern Mennonite 
Board of Missions and Charities on March 31, 1951. 
Final settlement, however, was not effected until the 
end of the year due to the slowness of the Ethiopian 
government in reimbursing MRC for money invest- 
ed in the Nazareth hospital as per previous agree- 
ment. However, since April 1. 1951, the Eastern 



Board took full administrative responsibility for the 
Ethiopian work, MRC loaning its workers to them 
until the completion of each worker's term. 

MRC continued to contribute monthly through- 
out the year to the relief and refugee program of 
MCC as funds were available. This is in keeping 
with the agreement established at the time that the 
MCC work through the relief agencies of its constit- 
uent groups rather than going directly to the con- 
stituency for funds. Funds for relief and refugee 
work are sent by local congregations to their district 
conference treasurers or direct to the Treasurer, 
Mennonite Board of Missions and Charities, for for- 
warding to the MCC headquarters at Akron, Pa. 
Members of the MCC from the Mennonite Board of 
Missions and Charities constituency are elected an- 
nually by MRC and recommended to the Board 
Executive Committee for appointment. 

Voluntary Service— Long Term 
The year 1951 saw the establishment of two more 
long-term service units: La Junta Hospital Unit and 
the Navajo Indian Migrant Unit. In addition plans 
were laid for a long term unit at Mathis, Texas, 
among the Spanish-speaking Americans, to begin on 
January 1, 1952. Meanwhile the former units at La 
Plata, Puerto Rico, and Kansas City, Mo., were en- 
larged due to increased pressures on conscientious 
objectors and growing interest in the voluntary serv- 
ice program. 

Puerto Rico: Two young men were sent in May to 
assist with the construction work of the enlarging 
mission-service program, and an additional man was 
added to the farm program in June. Plans were 
also made to send more men to work in the sanita- 
tion program as soon as the regulations for work 
projects under the new draft law were clarified. 
These regulations did not materialize during the 
year, and at year's end the Committee was still wait- 
ing for more definite word before enlarging the pro- 
gram in Puerto Rico. The unit reached its maxi- 
mum strength on October 15, 1951, with a total of 
37 workers. Twelve workers were sent to Puerto 
Rico during 1951, either as replacements or to fill 
new posts. 

The Executive Secretary of MRC accompanied a 
representative from the Mission Board to Puerto 
Rico early in the year to work on the problem of 
closer unity between the mission and service pro- 
gram. Plans were laid during that visit to establish 



1952 MENNONITE YEARBOOK AND DIRECTORY 



9 



an over-all Puerto Rico Executive Committee to 
direct the total mission-service program on the is- 
land. Details of this plan were worked on through- 
out the year and the plan finally put in operation 
by the year's end. The La Plata Mennonite Project 
continued to serve the people of Puerto Rico in the 
areas of medical service and sanitation; agricultural 
service; and community service, which included a 
kindergarten, community paper, and industrial proj- 
ects, such as the sewing project, which gave employ- 
ment to local residents. 

Kansas City Hospital Unit: During the year the 
number of men in the unit so increased that it was 
necessary to rent rooms outside the unit home. 
These rooms were located near by in order that the 
men could board in the unit home and participate 
in unit life. Members of the unit serve as attend- 
ants in the hospital, which has 15 wards and 500 
beds. They also assist in the mission program at the 
Mennonite Gospel Center under the direction of the 
pastor. The maximum strength of the unit at any 
one time during the year was 16 members. 

La Junta Hospital Unit: The first member joined 
this unit in February. Others joined in March, 
April, May, and June with a few coming in later so 
that by October 15 the unit numbered 25 young 
people serving the hospital on a voluntary service 
basis. Their service makes possible more hospital 
care for the needy of the community since the hos- 
pital credits savings in wages to a donated services 
fund, which is then used to pay for hospital care 
for the poor. Members of the unit participate in 
the local church program and carry on certain activi- 
ties of their own, such as jail services. 

Indian Migrant Unit: Seven young people served 
among the Navajo Indians in the Grants, N.M., area 
from June to November. The Indians leave the 
reservation and come to a farm labor camp oper- 
ated by a local farming concern. The camp in which 
the unit worked contained from 135 to 140 families. 
Service workers provided much needed health serv- 
ice, education and recreation for the children, and 
Bible teaching for both children and adults. In 
November the unit moved to Phoenix, Ariz., and 
began working in several camps west of Phoenix, 
two for Navajo Indians and one for Negroes. A re- 
quest for Christinas bundles from our constituency 
brought in GOO bundles for Navajo children by 
December 15, with more coming in. Attempts arc 
being made by the unit to find a permanent location 
from which to work. 

Church Institutions: MRC assigned long-term vol- 
untary service workers during 1951 to the West 
Liberty, Ohio., Children's Home, the Kansas City 
Children's Home, and the Mennonite Home for the 
Aged, Eureka, 111. These workers take their place 
in the institution and render service on the regular 
voluntary service maintenance basis. 

Service for I-O men: MRC is co-operating with 
MCC in setting up facilities to take care of I-O 
men who will want to serve their two years under 
the new draft law in some kind of church -directed 
service. Opportunities will be available in pax 
services, overseas voluntary service approved by the 
government for I-O men. These services will need 
to be subsidized completely by the church. The 
present voluntary service program is to be expanded 
by enlarging present units which will receive gov- 



ernment approval and finding new ones. In the two 
above services men will work on the regular volun- 
tary service maintenance basis. Voluntary service is 
partially self-supporting through certain earning 
units but will require some subsidy by the church. 
For men who wish to serve in government institu- 
tions and other accepted services and keep their full 
pay as provided under the new law, MRC and MCC 
stand ready to provide housing and educational 
facilities at cost as requested and needed. This is 
being called alternate service and will not require 
subsidy from the church. 

Voluntary Service— Short Term 
Young people who desired to serve for less than a 
year were assigned to service projects at Saginaw, 
Mich.; the Bethel Mission, Chicago; the Mennonite 
Home for the Aged, Eureka, 111.; Hesston College 
Builders Unit; Goshen College Builders Unit; and 
the Mexican Mission, Chicago, Builders Unit. MRC 
attempts to find work for young people according to 
the time they have for service and the talents they 
have to dedicate to service. 

Summer Service 
The 1951 Summer Service program was the largest 
yet, with 127 young people serving in 25 units for 
periods from 6 to 12 weeks. The units included 10 
city missions, 5 rural missions, 5 child welfare, 2 
homes for the aged, and a colporteur team, an MYF 
youth team, and a student-in-industry unit. Races 
served included white, negro, and red; nationalities 
served were American, Italian, Lithuanian, Finnish, 
Mexican, and Swedish. A large number of Bibles 
and tracts were distributed and 86 souls accepted 
Christ through the witness of the service workers. 

Finances 

One offering a month for relief and service from 
each of our congregations is the present goal for 
giving. The MRC monthly budget is based on an 
average income throughout the year of approximate- 
ly $12,000. This includes $2,000 monthly for refu- 
gees, $3,500 for MCC relief each month, and from 
$600 to S900 monthly for the support of young peo- 
ple from the Mennonite Board of Missions and Char- 
ities constitutency serving in MCC voluntary service, 
in addition to taking care of the total MRC program 
as outlined above. Approval of pax service units and 
voluntary service units by the government for I-O 
men will require increased giving from our churches, 
but nothing like was required to support the CPS 
program. 

Service Vision 
We believe that the relief and service program 
should be based upon the example and teachings of 
Jesus as outlined in Matt. 9:35 to 10:8 and other 
New Testament passages. Jesus went about all the 
cities and villages teaching in their synagogues, 
preaching the Gospel of the kingdom, and healing 
every sickness and every disease among the people. 
Even service by I-O men should give testimony to 
the Gospel in every way possible. Jesus instructed 
His disciples to pray, preach, minister to the needy, 
and give as freely as they had received. We, His 
twentieth -century disciples, can do no less.

Peace Problems Committee 

Ernest W. Lehman 



The Committee met on three occasions during 
1951: March 10, August 7, and November 8. Pri- 
mary concerns in these meetings included the draft 
law developments; peace literature writing and 
publication; preparation of a new conference state- 
ment on peace, war, and military service; and other 
related subjects. 

The personnel of the Committee was changed 
somewhat in the appointment of Emerson L. Mc- 
Dowell, John H. Hess and J. L. Stauffer to succeed 
A. L. Fretz, C. C. Cressmen, and H. A. Diener. 

The chairman of the Committee, H.S. Bender, was 
in Europe for a short period during the summer in 
the interests of the program planning for the 1952 
Mennonite World Conference, and also to participate 
in a number of peace conferences. Brother Bender 
also led in the drafting of a Mennonite statement on 
nonresistance to be included with similar state- 
ments by other historic peace churches for presenta- 
tion to the World Council of Churches. 

The Draft Law 

After long discussion in both houses of Congress, 
the Universal Military Training and Service Act was 
passed and became law on June 19, 1951. Under the 
Act the Selective Service draft was extended to 1955, 
the draft age lowered to 18^ and the term of active 
service extended to 24 months. Upon release from 
active service draftees are required to serve in the 
reserves for an additional 5 years. Persons who re- 
ceive deferments will remain liable for the draft, 
if the reason for the deferment should cease, until 
they reach the age of 35. 

Under this Act, a conscientous objector will no 
longer be deferred, but in lieu of induction he will 
be ordered by his local board, subject to such regu- 
lations as the President may prescribe, to perform 
for a period of 24 months "such civilian work con- 
tributing to the maintenance of the national health, 
safety or interest as the local board may deem ap- 
propriate." There is no reserve obligation following 
this service term. No conscientous objectors were as- 
signed to civilian work during 1951 because the 
Presidential regulations were not issued. 

The UMTS Act also provided for the establish- 
ment of a National Security Training Commission 
which is responsible to draw up a detailed universal 
military training plan. The first report of this Com- 
mission was made on Oct. 29, 1951, and referred to 
the Armed Service Committee of the House and Sen- 
ate. H. S. Bender was one of four Mennonite dele- 
gates appointed by the Mennonite Central Committee 
to present testimony on the UMT plan as soon as 
hearings are held. 

Voluntary and Alternative Service 
Information from government officials stated that 
when the presidential regulations dealing with the 
draft of CO's are completed, young men would be 
able to volunteer under the draft, and thus have 
somewhat greater degree of choice in the type of 
civilian work in which they are assigned. The 
Committee gave consideration to the implications of 
this information, and decided to send this informa- 



tion to all the draft-age brethren of the church. 
Decision was also made to proceed, through the 
Mennonite Central Committee, with a census of all 
the young men of the church in the age group of 17 
to 25 years. The Committee recommended that the 
Mennonite Relief Committee should take initiative in 
the use of our young men who wish to volunteer for 
government approved service under church direction. 
It was also expected that help could be given to the 
young men of the church who would volunteer or be 
drafted to perform their alternative service in work 
other than church-directed service units. 

Conference Statement on Nonresistance 

The Committee felt that a new statement with 
respect to peace, war and military service should be 
prepared. The previous statement adopted by Gen- 
eral Conference at Turner, Oregon, in 1937 has been 
very helpful during the World War II period and 
continues to represent the basic position of the 
church on military service. However, new concepts 
have emerged through the wartime experiences which 
strengthen particularly the positive and constructive 
aspect of nonresistance. To give more full expression 
to these convictions the Committee prepared "A 
Declaration of Christian Faith and Commitment" 
which was adopted by the General Conference in 
session at Goshen, Indiana, on Aug. 23, 1951. 
Other Peace Literature 

The book The Mennonite Church in the Second 
World War by Guy F. Hershberger was published, 
and likewise a reprint of the pamphlet Nonresistance 
in Colonial Pennsylvania by Wilbur Bender. Answer 
to War by Millard Lind is now off the press. Con- 
tinued effort was made toward the completion of a 
book on Heroes of Nonresistance for youth. 

Peace Essay Contest 

This contest was repeated in view of the good 
response last year, and in order to foster a stronger 
emphasis of the nonresistant doctrine among young 
people of high-school age. This year twenty-one 
papers were submitted from eight Mennonite high 
schools. Each student submitting an entry received 
a copy of Wenger's Glimpses of Mennonite History 
and Doctrine; and the three entries judged best were 
awarded a small cash prize plus either Hershberger's 
War, Peace and Nonresistance or Gingerich's Service 
for Peace. 

Finances 

The treasurer of the Committee, C. L. Graber, 
reported a balance of $1369.74 on November 8, 1950. 
During the current year disbursements amounted to 
$10,382.78 while receipts totalled $9,348.52, leaving 
a balance of $335.48. The Committee agreed to 
discontinue separate fund solicitations from the con- 
gregations, and instead to co-ordinate its need for 
funds with the plan approved by General Confer- 
ence in August, 1951, in which a combined appeal 
is to be made for various conference needs. The 
budget presented by the Committee called for $20,000 
for the 1951-1953 biennium, which is the same yearly 
amount as the budget for 1950 had been.

Mennonite Publication Board 

Harold Zehr, Secretary 



Organization 

The Mennonite Publication Board was organized 
about forty years ago for the purpose of correlating 
the efforts of several church leaders who had a 
vision of the opportunities in the field of literature 
evangelism. Probably one of the greatest agencies in 
the unifying of the church in her witness has been 
her literature. Since that time, the responsibility of 
the Board has grown until at present the church 
owns and operates through its Publication Board, a 
modern printing establishment, together with edi- 
torial and administrative offices and a bookstore, at 
Scottdale, Pa., as well as four branch book stores 
located in larger centers of Mennonite population, 
with a net worth of about 1*4 million dollars. 

The Board is composed of thirty members. Twen- 
ty-one are elected by the various district conferences; 
three by General Conference, and five by the Board 
as members at large. These together with the Pub- 
lishing Agent comprise the Mennonite Publication 
Board. The present officers are: President, John C. 
Wenger, Goshen, Ind.; Vice-President, Harold Bau- 
man, Orrville, Ohio; Treasurer, Marcus Clemens, 
Souderton, Pa.; Secretary, Harold Zehr, Rantoul, 
111.; and fifth member, E. C. Bender, Martinsburg, 
Pa. 

Periodicals and Books 

At present the Board officially sponsors ten period- 
icals in addition to the Herald Uniform Sunday 
School materials. About forty periodicals along with 
other items are also printed in our plant for various 
district conferences and Mennonite organizations. 
One of the major responsibilities of the Publishing 
House has been the production of materials for the 
teaching agencies of the church. Through the con- 
scientious and sacrificial work of consecrated writers, 
editors, and personnel in the various departments, 
we are now offering materials for use in Sunday 
schools and summer Bible schools which have gained 
widespread recognition and acceptance by the gen- 
eral Christian public as well as our own church. 

The production of books has also been on the 
increase during the past few years. Among the 
latest ones released are: Separated unto God, by 
John C. Wenger; Wings of Decision, by Eunice 
Shellenberger; God of the Hills, by L. J. Lantz; 
The Mennonite Church in the Second World War, 



by Guy F. Hershberger; Africa Answers, by Merle 
W. Eshleman; Middle-East Sojourn, by S. A. Yoder; 
Answer to War, by Millard Lind; Such Thoughts of 
Thee, by Miriam Sieber Lind. Several other books 
are in various stages of planning and production 
which should be forthcoming in the near future. 
While some of them are smaller items, others involve 
considerable effort and expenditures. Among the 
larger projects in which investments are being made 
are the Mennonite Encyclopedia and the late Brother 
J. B. Smith's New Testament Greek-English Con- 
cordance. 

Literature Needs Studied 

The Board has been endeavoring to study and 
meet the literature needs of the church. To assist 
in this our constitution provides for a Publishing 
Committee of five members (now consisting of Paul 
Erb, J. C. Wenger, Howard Charles, John E. Lapp, 
and John L. Stauffer), whose duty it is "to plan for 
the production of books that will meet the needs of 
the church and submit its recommendations to the 
Publishing Agent." During the past year we have 
also had a Periodical Study Committee whose duty 
it was to survey our periodicals to determine how 
well they are meeting the needs of the church. The 
Board received its report at the annual meeting held 
at Wayland, Iowa, February 20, 21, 1952. 

With this expanding interest in the production of 
Christian literature, the Board and its Executive 
Committee has faced several problems in which we 
covet the prayers of the church. Costs of production 
have risen rapidly. Our payroll during the past five 
years has more than doubled. With the production 
of greater quantities of more expensive publications 
we find that our assets can quickly be tied up in 
inventories. Yet we are sure that the church de- 
mands and is entitled to the best quality literature 
we can produce. She deserves and must have liter- 
ature that is Scripturally sound as the Mennonite 
Church interprets the Bible; literature that touches 
every area of Christian life and experience, and 
literature that is well written and attractively pro- 
duced. 

The Board invites the prayers and counsel of the 
church as it endeavors to serve to this end.

Organization 

"The entrance of thy words giveth light" (Ps. 
119:130). 

The truth of this Scripture gave vision to our 
brethren to start a school (now Goshen College) for 
Mennonite young people in 1894, and to organize 
the above-named board in 1904. 

On pages 22, 23 you will find the organization of 
the Mennonite Board of Education. The officers of 
the Board appear first. Then you will see the dis-

trict conferences which elect representatives on the 
Board. Other members of the Board consist of elect- 
ed representatives from school alumni and General 
Conference and several are ex-officio members. Fol- 
lowing the organization of the Board appear the 
Mennonite Research Foundation, our church col- 
leges, high schools, and elementary schools. 

These pages indicate first of all the interest which 
the Mennonite Church has in giving her youth an 
opportunity to receive Christian training in a Chris- 



12 



1952 MENNONITE YEARBOOK AND DIRECTORY 



tian environment. Secondly, they show the large 
number of brethren and sisters who are being used 
by the church in these schools to carry on this part 
of its Christian nurture program. Thirdly, these 
pages show first a part of the responsibilities, con- 
cerns, and opportunities of the Mennonite Board of 
Education. 

However, these pages do not show the many par- 
ents who are interested in the spiritual as well as 
mental development of their children; the large 
number of gifted young people who have a vision of 
the needs of the world in which they live and have 
a desire to prepare themselves for service for Christ; 
and the amount of money and energy required to 
make this program possible. 

The year 1951 has been richly blessed of the Lord. 
Many young people who received help in our schools 
have entered fields of service in various areas of 
church work. There are those who have answered 
the call of the Lord to give themselves for service in 
our local churches. There are those who have dedi- 
cated their lives for service in mission fields. Others 
are serving in various vocations. 

Building Programs Continue 
The building programs have continued so that 
now part of the new girls' dormitory at Goshen is 
being used this year. Construction continues as 
funds and materials become available. The new 
Science Hall at Hesston is nearly complete. It is 
being used and is very much appreciated by both 
students and teachers. Plans are being made for 
dedication services early in 1952. Other schools are 
making progress in their building programs. 

At its annual meeting held at the Conestoga Men- 
nonite Church near Morgantown, Pa., October 18-20, 
1951, the Board approved the following recommen- 
dation of the Executive Committee: "That since a 
sum of money is being made available for a separate 
seminary building on Goshen's campus, we recom- 
mend to the annual meeting of the Board that they 
authorize the Executive Committee to appoint a 
Seminary Building Planning Committee which is to 
proceed with plans for design and location. It is 
understood that the Executive Committee is author- 
ized to begin with construction of the building dur- 
ing the year if the plans are ready and the money 
available." 

The Board was happy to receive the final report 
of the Religious Survey Committee. This report 
gave evidence of much work that was done by each 
of the schools in making surveys. It is hoped that 
this study will now help each of the schools to see 
more clearly their task and will lend in strengthen- 
ing the religious program. Their surveys have also 



shown that part of the religious problems of our 
schools are problems that arise out of our homes 
and home churches. 

Personnel and Finances 
The question of faithful and able personnel is 
ever a deep concern of the Board. It is only normal 
that in such a large program there is a constant 
changing of staff and teachers. For this task the 
Board and especially its Executive Committee seek 
the leading of the Lord and the prayers of the 
church. 

The question of finances cannot be avoided. The 
costs of providing and maintaining plants are con- 
stantly rising. Many of the staff and teachers in our 
schools are making sizeable contributions to our pro- 
gram by working where they do, for much less than 
they could receive in state supported schools. The 
Board believes that the church is interested enough 
in her young people and schools to provide the 
means necessary to carry on this work for the glory 
of God. 

The La Junta Mennonite School of Nursing has 
added a new person to its staff. Arlene Sitler has 
taken up her duties as Business Manager and Field 
Representative for the school. Already she has given 
good service in helping the school internally and 
has visited a number of churches. In her service as 
Field Representative she will endeavor to contact as 
many churches as she can to promote an interest in 
nurses' training. The Board feels that this profes- 
sion is a worthy service for our sisters to enter. 
Our relief and mission programs are in constant 
need of nurses. It is hoped that Sister Sitler may be 
well received wherever she goes and that she may 
help many of our sisters who are thinking of enter- 
ing nursing as their life's work. 

Tribute to J. B. Smith 
A word of tribute should be given to J. B. Smith 
whom the Lord called to his reward in this past year. 
Brother Smith served as instructor in the Bible de- 
partment of Hesston College and Bible School two 
periods of several years each. He was the first 
president of Eastern Mennonite College. He served 
as a member of the Mennonite Board of Education 
and was vice-president of the Board for a number of 
terms. As a scholar Brother Smith could see the 
dangerous trends in education and often spoke words 
of warning which helped the Board in directing the 
education program of the church. Brother Smith's 
words of commendation and encouragement were 
also appreciated. The influence of his life and teach- 
ing upon many young people of the church is now 
being felt. Hutchinson, Kansas 



Mennonite Commission for Christian Education 

J. J. Hostetler, Secretary-Treasurer 



Every local church is confronted with a tremendous 
challenge to evangelize the lost and to nurture the 
saved. The Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ needs 
to be propagated in every area and to every genera- 
tion. Christian workers need to be prepared to help 
in this universal task. The local congregation is 
responsible for this task in their area individually, 



and for the whole world, with other churches, cor- 
porately. To help perform this task the church has 
brought into existence such agencies as the Sunday 
school, young people's Bible meeting, summer Bible 
school, weekday Bible school, young people's insti- 
tute, summer camps, literaries, Mennonite Youth 
Fellowship, etc. The church has also taken an active 



1952 MENNONITE YEARBOOK AND DIRECTORY 



13 



interest in directing spiritual life and growth in the 
areas of the home, junior activities, training of work- 
ers, missionary concerns, and Christian singing. 

To plan literature materials needed by these agen- 
cies and areas of work, to correlate and integrate 
the various avenues of service, and to give aid to 
the local congregations and district conferences in 
these tasks, the members of General Conference have 
set up the Commission for Christian Education and 
Young People's Work. The Commission is composed 
of twelve members, ten elected by General Confer- 
ence, and two chosen by the Commission. The Com- 
mission is organized with a secretary for each of 
these agencies or areas of work. Consult the section 
on "Church Organizations" for names and details. 
The Field Secretary is appointed to represent the 
Commission in the churches and to direct the work- 
ing of the group. The Commission meets twice a 
year to review and plan the program and needs of 
the various agencies and areas of service. 

Curriculum Committee 

This committee of five members, three represent- 
ing the Commission and two appointed by the Pub- 
lication Board, is responsible for the advance re- 
search and planning of all course materials for use 
in the local church. They also review and adapt 
the International Uniform Series of Sunday-school 
lessons to the needs of our church. 

They plan and organize our graded Sunday-school 
materials for the writers. They have also planned 
and organized our summer Bible school materials, 
Christian workers' training courses, Program Build- 
er, and are now working on weekday Bible school 
courses. They seek to maintain a Biblical and evan- 
gelical emphasis along with sound pedagogical prin- 
ciples and a correlated program in all of our ma- 
terials. Theirs is no easy or simple task. 

Sunday School 

The annual report of the Sunday school in the 
"Statistical Section" should be carefully examined 
and compared with those of previous years. This 
report indicates a numerical growth in our church, 
perhaps more so than in spiritual areas, such as 
Bible reading and family worship. During the past 
ten-year period, our schools in the United States and 
Canada, increased from 490 to 601, or 23 per cent. 
The enrollment increased over 55 per cent to the 
present high of 88,153 pupils. 

The revised lesson materials are being used widely 
and appreciated. Additional aids are available for 
local use, such as census cards, enrollment cards, 
Herald class record books, and the monthly pages 
in the Herald Teacher. Plans are being formulated 
to call together all Sunday-school workers in a 
church wide conference. The purpose of this con- 
ference is to share experiences, have workshop ses- 
sions, and to stimulate greater effort in this field of 
service. 

Young People's Bible Meeting 
The Sunday evening service is perhaps the most 
varied of all our meetings. Lacking uniformity 
makes it difficult to record statistics, or to provide 
an overall program that is flexible to local needs. 
Perhaps this is as it should be. However, this also 
places greater responsibilities on local leaders to 
maintain an active and constructive service. The 



Program Builder has been serving as a great help to 
local leaders. In a recent survey made by the Secre- 
tary of Young People's Bible Meetings a wide and 
divergent interest and attitude concerning the pat- 
tern and purpose of the young people's Bible meet- 
ing was shown. However, nearly all reported that 
an active Sunday evening service should be main- 
tained. Perhaps a restudy of objectives and pur- 
poses locally is necessary. Such a study would help 
locally to clarify the type of meeting that each con- 
gregation should have. The Commission Secretary 
is making further studies in this field this year. 

Summer Bible School 
More and more local churches are utilizing this 
agency for the thorough and intensive nurture of 
the boys and girls. Our number of schools has been 
steadily increasing each year. More mission or out- 
station schools are also inaugurated each year. More 
non-Mennonite people are contacted through this 
means than any other agency. Out of a total pupil 
enrollment of 68,252 last year, 39,424 were of non- 
Mennonite people. Our new materials are of the 
best, and are being widely used by other church 
groups. The materials are now complete for all 
courses including the new manual for superintend- 
ents. 

Weekday Bible School 
This agency has not been used by our local 
churches as it might be. The weekday Bible school 
takes on several forms: 1) Regular classes taught by 
a minister, or Christian worker, during a certain 
period in public school each week. 2) Classes taught 
at the church while children are released from school 
for a regular period each week. 3) Classes taught at 
the church after school dismissal on a regular basis 
each week. 4) Classes formed and taught during the 
evening regularly each week. For effective work 
these classes need a regular course of study graded 
to the pupils. They also need good teachers and 
methods comparable to those used in school or 
summer Bible school. While informal midweek Bible 
studies in connection with prayer meetings and adult 
groups are good, the regular weekday Bible school 
program is much more efficient and effective. New 
materials for these courses are being planned. They 
are to be integrated with our Sunday school and 
summer Bible school courses to prevent overlapping. 

Christian Workers' Training 
With the great need our churches have for teach- 
ers and workers, a training program in each church 
is vital. To meet this need a series of courses and 
program of studies have been provided. A manual 
describing this program and steps in arranging for 
a course in each local church have been prepared 
and distributed. Additional copies are available 
upon request. Large or small, every congregation 
can have a training program to prepare needed 
workers. Certificates are given for satisfactory com- 
pletion of courses. 

Missionary Education 
The Commission co-operates with the general 
Mission Board in providing mission study courses 
for use in local congregations. Missionary informa- 
tion and publicity is also provided for use on spring 
and fall missionary days. Other services of this 
agency include promotion of youth missionary proj- 



14 



1952 MENNONITE YEARBOOK AND DIRECTORY 



ects, missionary savings banks, quarter investments, 
and missionary outposts. Churches are encouraged 
to provide mission study courses for their Sunday 
evening or midweek services. Informed churches are 
missionary churches. 

Church Music 
Through various contacts and music conferences 
this agency has discovered that singing schools in 
local areas are essential if we would maintain an 
adequate music program for our congregations in 
unaccompanied four-part singing. People need to be 
taught how to read music, particularly children and 
young people. A manual is being prepared to help 
local music leaders in directing the singing schools 
for local congregations. Often music teachers, chor- 
isters, and chorus directors desire help in selecting 
and purchasing special music. The Secretary of 
Church Music is able to provide this assistance. 
Write him when in need. 

Home Interests 
One of the great needs today is for more and 
better Christian homes. This calls for an informed 
parenthood, family worship, a definite home teach- 
ing procedure, and proper social relationships. Spe- 
cial literature and helps for parents and church lead- 
ers are being planned and will be distributed during 
this year. Other articles on "Building Christian 
Homes" will continue to appear in our church pa- 
pers. A bibliography on materials for the Christian 
home will be compiled for use by anyone seeking 
helps. Home conferences are being encouraged. 

Young People's Activities 
This area involves literaries, Mennonite Youth 
Fellowship, summer institutes, camps, and youth 
conferences. The MYF program is meeting a great 
need in providing activities in all areas for Christian 
youth. It is a movement whereby young people find 
themselves spiritually and share in developing their 



convictions and wholesome attitudes along Christian 
principles. Local youth organizations such as liter- 
aries, young people's Bible meetings, missionary 
bands, etc., can affiliate and receive the help, guid- 
ance, and direction for spiritual expression without 
forming a new organization. Small groups may also 
participate. In co-operation with the voluntary serv- 
ice program this field will become increasingly more 
important in light of present world conditions. 

Junior Activities 
To maintain a social relationship that is Christian 
and loyal to the local Church, special attention 
needs to be given to the juniors. While the junior 
sewing circles have made some provision for the 
girls, very little has been accomplished for the boys. 
Some churches have organized craft work, clubs, 
missionary gardens, and summer camps. Others have 
been asking for help. To provide guidance and help 
to local leaders a manual is in the process of prepa- 
ration that will cover all these needs. 

Conclusion 

During the years 1951 and 1952 the major em- 
phasis of the Commission is "Building Christian 
Homes." The home is basic in the social structure 
of a moral and Christian society. Our churches can- 
not grow beyond the strength of the homes which 
compose the church. Every effort and influence pos- 
sible should be brought to bear upon this emphasis. 
The Commission has decided to follow this emphasis 
in 1953 with "Christian Nonresistance." 

The needs of the local churches are a definite 
challenge to the members and secretaries of the Com- 
mission. The Field Secretary has been asked to give 
half time to the study and promotion of the work 
for the time being. Local church and district con- 
ference leaders may seek the counsel and aid of the 
Commission at any time. Your encouragement and 
prayers will be greatly appreciated. Canton, Ohio 



Eastern Mennonite Board of Missions and Charities 

Paul N. Kraybill, Editor of "Missionary Messenger" 



Under the guidance and blessing of God the work 
of the Eastern Board has continued to go forward. 
In many areas the program is expanding in an effort 
to meet in some measure the needs that exist about 
us. 

The work of missions is more than a Board project. 
It is the vital expression of a living church. Each 
member should be an active participant. We look 
forward to a continued growth of conviction and 
interest in this area. 

Home Missions 

Our proximity as a conference to a number of 
large eastern cities presents an unusual mission op- 
portunity. Although we have been slow to recognize 
this, the past year has marked some significant for- 
ward moves in this area. 

The building purchased in the Bronx, New York 
City, and renovated into an attractive chapel, was 
dedicated on March 18. This is our second mission 
point in the Bronx, and a third in the Negro Har- 
lem area is in prospect. Three families have now 
moved to New York and are giving their time to 



this work on a self-supporting basis. The testimony 
of these "nonprofessional" missionaries has had a 
great influence. There are great possibilities for 
many more to live and work among the people. We 
praise the Lord for the growing church here with 
twenty-three baptized members. 

In Philadelphia, a new building has been built 
largely by voluntary service labor. This is providing 
much more adequate facilities for the growing Ox- 
ford Circle Church. This work in a new federal 
housing project is a direct outgrowth of the Norris 
Square Mission Church. 

Regular services were begun in Harrisburg in 
February by two interested groups, a congregation 
and a Christian service organization. Later in the 
year it was turned over to the Mission Board to be 
operated as a regular mission point. 

A number of congregations are taking an interest 
in finding an outpost. The Churchtown congrega- 
tion (Lancaster County) has opened regular services 
at Cambridge near by. Seven congregations spon- 
sored outpost summer Bible schools in central and 



1952 MENNONITE YEARBOOK AND DIRECTORY 



15 



northern Pennsylvania this summer. An additional 
outpost Bible school was sponsored by an outpost 
Sunday school! 

Foreign 

There are at present sixty-seven appointed foreign 
workers. This includes nine from Africa who are at 
present on furlough and two under appointment for 
Ethiopia. In addition to this number there are eight 
persons serving in Ethiopia on loan from the Men- 
nonite Relief Committee. 

During the year the Board gave its approval to 
opening mission work in Italian Somaliland. This 
country in eastern Africa is under United Nations 
trusteeship and largely peopled by Moslems. At 
present there is no evangelical witness in the entire 
country. There are a few isolated remnants of the 
work that was carried on by the Swedish Lutheran 
Church from 1896 to 1935 when they were forced to 
leave. 

Mission work was opened in Europe on Septem- 
ber 13 when the first group of missionaries for 
Luxembourg arrived there. This first missionary 
party consisted of a family sent by this board and a 
couple appointed by the Conservative Amish Men- 
nonite Conference who are co-operating in this 
project. 

In Honduras and Ethiopia the first groups of con- 
verts were baptized. It is gratifying to see such 
evidence of fruitfulness in our mission program. A 
second missionary couple is expected to be on the 
field in Honduras before the end of the year. A 
missionary nurse opened a clinic during the year. 
Plans are underway for construction of a chapel in 
Trujillo. The mission has been fortunate in being 
able to purchase a lot on which a very sturdy wall 
suitable for a building has already been erected. 

On March 31 the Mennonite Relief Committee hos- 
pital unit in Ethiopia was transferred to this Board. 
There are now four stations: Deder, Bedeno, Naza- 
reth and Addis Ababa. Clinics, schools, a hospital, 
and work among the blind in Addis Ababa supple- 
ment the regular mission program. 

In Tanganyika there is evidence of continued spir- 
itual growth. The cultural and economic changes 
that are becoming apparent will be an important 
factor in the continued program of the church. The 
educational work of the church is growing. There 
are five village schools and approximately forty evan- 
gelistic centers and bush schools. Bible classes are 
being conducted in five government schools. The 
Missionary Children's School is looking forward to 
using the new school and dormitory unit at Nyabasi 



when it is completed. Plans are being made to en- 
large the Shirati hospital to provide surgical facili- 
ties for Dr. J. Lester Eshleman who will be arriving 
on the field early in 1952. 

Voluntary Service 

Interest in voluntary service is rapidly growing. 
During the year volunteers served in New York City, 
Philadelphia, Tampa, northern Pennsylvania, and 
Alabama. They were engaged in various types of 
service such as builders' units, evangelistic teams, 
migrant work, and summer Bible school teams. One 
hundred fifty persons participated in this program. 

The concept of voluntary service is proving to be 
a very valuable testimony in the areas where the 
workers have gone. Persons who are willing to give 
of their time without pay to make a spiritual con- 
tribution to others have a unique testimony that has 
been noticed and appreciated by the people among 
whom they have worked. 

Other Activities 
The Itinerant Evangelism Committee conducted 
twenty-two summer Bible schools in Alabama and 
fourteen in central and northern Pennsylvania. 
Eight of the latter were outposts of various congre- 
gations. The committee is looking forward to open- 
ing additional work in the South particularly in 
Georgia. 

Over three hundred children from fourteen city 
missions spent a two-week period in country homes 
during the summer. This program provided an 
opportunity for the children to experience the bless- 
ings of a spiritual home environment. 

The Jewish Evangelism Committee has been active 
in its field. Workers are now stationed at Pottsville, 
Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Steelton in 
addition to other part-time workers who are quite 
active. 

Conclusion 

There is a heartening evidence of a greater inter- 
est in the program of witnessing. Financial receipts 
for the year are considerably greater than last year, 
though many more funds are still needed. A number 
of young couples are considering the possibility of 
moving into other needy areas where they can give 
a witness along with their vocation. 

More and more each one of us needs to realize 
the importance of each individual's part in the total 
program. We all are missionaries but with different 
types of responsibility.

I. Relief Section 
The MCC had 117 relief workers in 16 foreign 
countries at the end of 1951—27 in South America, 
24 in the Far East, 6 in the Middle East, and 60 in 
Europe. The two units in Shanghai and Hengyang, 
China, were turned over to the Chinese government 
in January of this year, and the unit in Italy was 
closed in July. A new area of work was opened in 
Korea in October. Because relief contributions arc 
becoming less each successive year, the number of 



workers was reduced by 21 the past year. In 1950 
there were 18 fewer than in 1949. 

Far East 

In Korea an MCC representative is working with 
the United Nations Civil Assistance Command, Ko- 
rea, attempting a closer co-ordination between them 
and the work of the voluntary agencies in the hope 
that actual relief work by voluntary agencies may 
begin soon. The project for T.B. contact children

1952 MENNONITE YEARBOOK AND DIRECTORY 



in Hong Kong has been in operation for one year 
now with an average of 20 children. Hong Kong 
also serves as the Far Eastern area headquarters. In 
Java and Formosa the emphasis continues to be on 
medical clinics with two clinics on each island. The 
community center in Osaka, Japan, is the main point 
of interest there. Sewing groups and English classes 
give an opportunity of reaching a wide scope of 
people. One MCC nurse worked in a community 
hospital in India. Although the emphasis in the Far 
East is on medical and community center work, the 
spiritual needs of the people are not forgotten. 
Many Bible classes have been organized and re- 
ligious meetings held. 

Hashimite Jordan 

The MCC shoemaking school for Arab refugee 
boys near Jericho had its first anniversary in Sep- 
tember of this year. Woodworking classes were add- 
ed recently. Clothing distributions, layette pro- 
gram, medical assistance, and women's sewing groups 
constitute the rest of the program. New services 
planned are additional crafts instruction, agricultural 
rehabilitation, and recreation. 

Europe 

In Germany the three community centers in Ber- 
lin, Kaiserslautern, and Heilbronn; the children's 
home in Bad Duerkheim; material aid distribution 
in Hamburg; the MCC-IRO team in Munich; the 
work in Espelkamp and Frankfurt progressed as in 
previous years. MCC headquarters in Austria were 
changed from Vienna to Salzburg with limited activi- 
ties continuing in Vienna. The French Mennonites 
took over the Weiler children's home, but MCC will 
assist in its operation as long as their help is needed. 
Valdoie children's home and youth center continued 
as before. In the Netherlands the conference center 
at Heerewegen and the group in Amsterdam minis- 
tered primarily to the spiritual needs of the people 
there. The European area office is still in Basel, 
Switzerland. 

Material Aid 

Continuing appeals for food necessitated the re- 
opening of the food collection centers this year. 
Four hundred fourteen tons of food were shipped 
during the fiscal year. Included in this total were 
319 tons of flour and 66 tons of navy beans. The 
Midwest and Ontario were busy with meat canning 
activities at the close of the year, but these receipts 
were too late to be included in the 1951 fiscal year. 
The close of the year also found several communities 
meeting special miscellaneous needs. 

One hundred eighty-five tons of new and used 
clothing and bedding and soap were received by 
the centers at Reedley, North Newton, Kitchener, 
and Ephrata. This quantity is conservatively evalu- 
ated at $420,000. Although the needs for clothing, 
bedding, and soap were just as great this year, con- 
tributions were 29 tons short of the previous year's 
receipts. 

Reducing the size of the Christmas Bundle result- 
ed in a record-breaking total of 28,103 received and 
ihipped. Of these Canadians contributed 5,203 which 
were sent to Paraguay. 



II. Mennonite Aid Section 
Europe 

The MCC refugee camp and processing center at 
Gronau, Germany, is still in operation. The two 
problems in Germany now are what to do with the 
500 to 600 Russian Mennonites including 200 hard 
core cases and the approximately 6,000 Danzig and 
Prussian Mennonites. Most of them will probably 
be resettled in Germany while some will emigrate. 
The first family of the latter group, who are classed 
as "Volksdeutsche" and are not eligible for IRO 
assistance, entered the United States in October of 
this year. Canada and some countries admitted them 
sooner. The International Refugee Organization 
which has been in operation nearly four years will 
go out of existence early in 1952, but a new organi- 
zation is being planned to take its place. 

The amount of $33,195 in loan funds was received 
for Western Germany Danzig Resettlement. In con- 
nection with this program twenty-seven young men, 
known as pax services, from the United States went 
to Germany during 1951 to help in construction work 
at Espelkamp and Neuwied. 

Soutfi America 

In October, 1951, 442 Danzig and Prussian Men- 
nonites from Germany arrived in Uruguay. Estancia 
Brabancia near Tres Bocas, 4,370 acres, was pur- 
chased for this group with the help of the Uruguay 
Settlement Associates in the United States. Until 
they can move to this site they will live at El Ombu 
with the immigrants who arrived there in 1948. 

The MCC sponsored leper project was begun in 
Paraguay with financial assistance from the Ameri- 
can Leprosy Missions. The experimental farm in 
the Chaco progressed in crop experiments and help 
to the colonies. 

MCC homes in the cities of Asuncion, Monte- 
video, Sao Paulo, and Buenos Aires continue to serve 
as centers of Mennonite activities. 

United States and Canada 
In 1951, 67 Mennonites entered the United States 
bringing the total that have come after World War 
II to 285. The MCC sponsored 313 non-Mennonite 
refugees in 1951 which is about the same number as 
the previous year. About 400 Mennonites entered 
Canada this past year. 

The first group of 21 Agricultural Trainees re- 
turned to Europe in May, 1951. The second group 
arrived in fall of the same year. The group includ- 
ed 20 boys and 6 girls. The girls for the most part 
were placed in Mennonite institutions. 

III. Voluntary Service 

During 1951 a total of 512 young people served 
in the MCC Voluntary Service program. Several 
hundred more found outlets for service in constit- 
uent group programs. The response of our Men- 
nonite young people has been most gratifying. The 
service program is well established and has become 
an integral part of the outreach program of the 
Mennonite Church. 

The Committee on Advice and Control has con- 
tinued to give valuable service in guiding the service

program. This committee will fill an even more im- 
portant position as the Voluntary Service section is 
called upon to assist our young men in class I-O to 
find acceptable service assignments. This committee 
with the MCC-VS section will be responsible for 
the administration of the continuing Voluntary Serv- 
ice program and the developing pax and alternative 
service programs. 

Long-Term Service 

United States: During the past year one-year volun- 
teers have served in fourteen MCC units in the 
United States. These units were serving in four 
general areas of need: the mentally ill in mental 
hospitals; delinquent and dependent children; mi- 
grant laborers; and in the area of race relations. 

Units include Boys' Village, Smithville, Ohio; 
Brook Lane Farm, Hagerstown, Md.; Calif. Migrant 
Unit, Coalinga, Calif.; Chicago Settlement House, 
Chicago, 111.; community service at Gulfport, Miss.; 
House of Mercy, Washington, D.C.; Industrial Home 
School Annex, Washington, D.C.; Kings View Homes, 
Reedley, Calif.; MCC Headquarters, Akron, Pa.; 
National Training School for Boys, Washington, 
D.C.; Stockton State Hospital, Stockton, Calif.; Re- 
construction Unit, North Topeka, Kans.; Topeka 
State Hospital, Topeka, Kans.; Wiltwyck School for 
Boys, Esopus, N.Y. 

During the last vear MCC has co-operated with 
several of our constituent groups by helping them 
in their VS projects. These units were located at the 
following places: General Conference Mission, Oraibi, 
Ariz.; Meadowlark Homestead, Newton, Kans.; 
Brethren in Christ Mission, Bloomfield, N.M. 

Foreign Service: Foreign service units include 
Bethesda Home, Vineland, Ont.; MCC Clothing and 
Food Center, Kitchener, Ont.; Work with STICA in 
Paraguay; and some personnel is also provided for 
Mennonite aid work in Mexico. 

Orientation Schools: In 1951 there have been seven 
orientation schools with 104 volunteers. Because of 
the uncertainty of the future effect of the draft on 
volunteers, it is not certain how many schools will 
be held in 1952. Tentative plans are for one every 
six weeks. 

Winter Service 
As in previous years there have been many per- 
sons from our groups who have been able to serve 
from two to six months during the winter months. 
This year, as last year, we have absorbed these per- 
sons into the regular one-year projects. However, 
the interest in this type of service has shown a 
definite increase and it now appears that additional 
projects, similar to the summer projects, will have 
to be provided to care for this need. 

Summer Service 
There were 304 persons who served in the summer 
service program: 90 in the United States; 73 in 
Canada; and 141 in Europe. This was 32 less than 
during the summer of 1950. The 1951 summer pro- 
gram was somewhat smaller than previous years due 
to several factors. The two chief factors were (1) 
the uncertainty about the future for many of our 
college students and, therefore, they wanted to 
utilize this summer in helping to pay college debts 
and other obligations which they had; (2) we did 
not have sufficient help in the Akron office at the 



time when the program should have been promoted 
and volunteers processed. This handicapped us in 
preparing additional publicity for the program and 
also in processing applicants as well as the location 
of new projects. 

The European program was again worked out in 
co-operation with the Council of Mennonite and 
Affiliated Colleges. In the six work camps (four in 
Germany, one in Belgium, and one in Switzerland) 
141 young people participated. Of these, 123 were 
Europeans. 

IV. Peace Section 

The 1951 session of the United States Congress 
was marked by a new, very vigorous drive to enact 
legislation to establish a permanent universal mili- 
tary training plan, as well as to amend the existing 
Selective Service Act. Testimony in opposition to 
the principle of UMT was submitted to the Senate 
Armed Services Committee on January 29 by H. S. 
Bender, Chairman of the Peace Section. The Uni- 
versal Military Training and Service bill which was 
finally adopted on June 19 set up a National Secur- 
ity Training Commission, and charged it with the 
responsibility of submitting a detailed UMT plan 
to Congress in the form of new legislation. The 
new bill also amended the former provision for 
conscientious objectors, abolishing deferment, and 
providing instead that CO's will be ordered by their 
local boards to do "work contributing to the main- 
tenance of the national health, safety, or interest." 

While this legislation was pending the Executive 
Secretary of the Peace Section was in constant touch 
with Washington to keep abreast of developments 
and to make representation as needed. These con- 
tacts have been continued since the new bill became 
law to represent Peace Section interests in the gov- 
ernment's planning for CO services. 

The work of the NSBRO continues on an increased 
scale. Elmer Neufeld, of Inman, Kansas, has joined 
the office staff as Associate Secretary and Peace Sec- 
tion representative. The office is now located at 
1105 K Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. The MCC 
Peace Section and the Brethren Service Commission 
continue to be the main supporting groups of 
NSBRO. 

V. Mental Health 
Central Area Program 

Plans for the third MCC mental hospital which 
is to be near Newton, Kansas, are taking shape. A 
cottage-style institution is envisioned in which each 
building will house approximately twenty patients. 
Although the plans are for an eventual five-unit in- 
stitution, the first two buildings will be designed so 
that operation can begin with their completion. 
This hospital plans to meet the needs of senile psy- 
chotic patients and older people. Other types of 
treatments will be determined by the needs. Parallel 
to the creation of the institutional program will be 
the development of noninstitutional services of 
counseling and guidance. 

Brook Lane Farm 
The average number of patients per day has in- 
creased from 16.8 in 1950 to 26.3 in 1951. A survey 
shows that a greater per cent of patients are com- 
ing from areas other than Hagerstown; this does 
not mean, however, that there are fewer patients 



18 



1952 MENNONITE YEARBOOK AND DIRECTORY 



from the immediate vicinity. The accumulative 
number of patients since the opening date in Jan- 
uary, 1949, is 487. Plans are to build a new wing to 
the present hospital building which will accommo- 
date six patients requiring special security care. 
Moving the business office as well as the office of 
the psychiatrist and counselor and the reception 
room for guests out of the hospital to one of the 
former CPS barracks will release two rooms for 
patients. This year an additional house was pur- 
chased for living quarters for the administrator and 
his family plus six other people. 

Kings View Homes 

Kings View Homes was opened in March, 1951. 
Since that time they have admitted 46 patients. The 
present census is 23. The community has been co- 
operative in the placement of patients who may 
leave the hospital if they have a proper foster home. 



Plans are to build a small and simple building adja- 
cent to the hospital for the accommodation of occu- 
pational therapy activities.

J. B. Smith, 1870-1951 

J. Harold Smith 



A gray-haired man sits alone at his desk. It is 
late afternoon. He is "lost" in his books. Books are 
all around him— they line the four walls, they stand 
in piles upon the desk and the table which is beside 
it. Nearest at hand are Bibles: Bibles in the original 
Hebrew and Greek, Bibles in a variety of transla- 
tions. Pages— many pages are turned. The pencil 
moves for a time across the sheet. Eventually the 
weary man leans back and stretches. For a moment 
there is a stare into vacancy, and then the eyelids 
droop, the hands drop loosely, the lips part— and 
then deep slumber. Fifteen or thirty minutes later, 
with a little start, consciousness returns. Once again 
the pages turn and the pencil moves. Time passes 
on— twelve o'clock, one o'clock, perhaps two o'clock 
before lights go out for the night. Thus, particu- 
larly in later life, lived and worked a man who 
through studiousness of habit and intensity of devo- 
tion had disciplined himself into a pattern of living 
that enabled him to focus his attention on studies 
that for infinitude of detail and precision of particu- 
lar were extremely exacting. But this was his meat 
and drink, this was his work, this was his life. 
Time of day or night came to mean little to him— 
his interest was in that dawn, that daybreak, which 
would usher in eternity of day, eternity of light. 

Jacob Brubaker Smith was born at St. Jacob's, 
Ontario, Canada, April 9, 1870. Even as a boy he 
seemed not content to follow the conventional pat- 
tern of the life of those about him— he had a vision! 
Prominent among the brief notes that he had made, 
preliminary to the writing of a life story that was 
never written, are references to a "strange sense" of 
God's presence: "God speaking to me when about 
ten years old . . ."; "the vision in the field behind 
the barn when about twelve years old— an immense 
audience before me holding up their hands in need." 
Such a sense of God's imminent presence and His 
continuing providence carries throughout the entire 
list of events, as is evidenced by the title he gives to 
his autobiographical notes: "Miraculous incidents 
and experiences of my life." To relate in their order 




J. B. Smith 



the step-by-step events and experiences which com- 
bined to determine the basic decisions which gov- 
erned a long life of preparation and service would 
demand detail far beyond the scope of this paper. 

On the one hand, there was "thirst after God," 
"passion for truth and the awful sense of life's re- 
sponsibility" which seemed to demand the further 
preparation of an advanced education. Counteracting 



1952 MENNONITE YEARBOOK AND DIRECTORY 



19 



this call, at one time came the resolution "to get 
away from home restraints and Mennonite environ- 
ment to see the Wild West to seek a fortune and 
fame, when about eighteen." But the prayers of a 
mother whose strong influence continued throughout 
a long life restrained him from carrying out this 
resolve. Another counteractive that must have had 
a powerful appeal was his father's offer to him, 
when he was twenty, of a 175-acre farm. During 
this same year, however, there came into his life the 
influence of a man who was to be instrumental in 
his conversion and was to leave on him a lasting 
impression of what God's grace and power can mean 
in a man's life. I have often heard Father speak of 
J. S. Coffman and of the impact of his personality 
and spirit upon those who heard and saw him. 
Later, while Brother Coffman was holding meetings 
at Ada, Ohio, his "stay with us boys" at the uni- 
versity was much appreciated. 

Coming to the states at a time when relatively 
few Mennonite youths were attending institutions of 
higher learning, he first attended Elkhart Institute 
(Indiana) and then spent several years at Ada (Ohio 
Northern University). He took further advanced 
work from Oskaloosa College (Iowa) and Temple 
University. After leaving Ada he was dissuaded from 
a desire to attend Harvard by a request from Daniel 
Kauffman in 1897 that he respond to a call to the 
ministry from the Bethel Church at Garden City, 
Mo. Accepting the call, he served in the ministry 
and taught school there for several years. But back 
in Ohio there was still the girl whom he had met 
some years before and had not forgotten— Lena 
Burkhart. Marriage in 1901 was followed by the 
acceptance of a call from M. S. Steiner to the church 
at West Liberty, Ohio. 

It was not in pastoral work, however, that Father 
was to do his greatest work. For a number of years 
he was to be intimately associated with the early 
development of two of our church schools. During 
seven years, 1910-1917, he served on the faculty of 
what was then Hesston Academy and Bible School. 
He later returned for two more years of service, 
1927-1929. His return to Ohio in 1917, with the 
plan of settling down at Elida, was interrupted with- 
in a few months by an unexpected call to be prin- 
cipal of a church school which was just getting well 
started— the institution which is the present Eastern 
Mennonite College. After leaving Virginia, where 
he had served from 1917-1922, the family again 
moved to Elida, this time to set up permanent resi- 
dence. However, he continued contacts with the 
church schools as a member of the Mennonite Board 
of Education, serving for a number of years on its 
Executive Committee. 

Further part in the educational program of the 
church was realized through frequent assignments at 
Special Bible Terms, at church conferences, and in 
membership on various committees. One such as- 
signment of particular interest to him was member- 
ship on the Music Committee. His interest in music, 
first evidenced in his references to youthful experi- 
ences in "learning to sing," carried throughout his 
life. Here again was the influence of a mother— a 
mother who at an advanced age sang 200 songs 
from memory (according to her daughter's count), 
and who died singing, as her son had predicted she 
would. 



It was as a writer and lecturer that most of 
Father's time was spent during his later life. His 
first writing of booklet length was One Thousand 
Best Verses of the Bible, a selective compilation 
based, in many cases, on verses in both the original 
and in different translations. He spent considerable 
time both in lecturing on and in writing about non- 
conformity, particularly as it relates to attire. Many 
of his lectures were on the subject of prophecy and 
Revelation. His second largest writing project was 
a verse-by-verse commentary on the Book of Revela- 
tion. However, the work that occupied most of his 
time and that became the central thing in his life 
was his Greek-English Concordance of the New Tes- 
tament. The idea for this unique and distinctive 
approach came to him during the 1920's when he 
was actively engaged in farming. The basic purpose 
of the whole work was to so clearly set forth the 
original meanings of Greek words that a much fuller 
sense of understanding and appreciation would be 
made possible, not only to ministers and Bible teach- 
ers but also to the average layman. Begun and car- 
ried on for a long time as an extra-hour project, 
this work, during his later life employed the great 
share of his time. It has been for some time in 
preparation for publication by the Mennonite Pub- 
lishing House whose sponsorship during some years 
made possible the completion of the monumental 
task. Other manuscripts, either completed or only 
partially so, await further examination and evalua- 
tion by competent investigators. 

As a father, "Papa J. B." always had a keen in- 
terest and concern in the welfare of his family. 
However, his frequent periods of absence from home, 
together with his constant occupation with studies, 
made it impossible for him to spend the amount of 
time with his family that he otherwise would have. 
Much credit is due the wife and mother whose addi- 
tional work with gardens, with pigs and poultry, 
made possible the supplementing of an income which 
was often very meager; only careful frugality made 
possible the feeding and clothing of a family of 
seven children. 

In reviewing such a life— so long and so fruitful- 
one feels a deep sense of gratitude that God gave 
so many years, years that ended, not in gradual 
decay, but years that closed in the strength of cre- 
ative endeavor— and then the quick translation, on 
Sept. 23, 1951! Father seemed to greatly enjoy his 
later years. He and Mother were together in closer 
and more understanding companionship than ever 
before. Physically, he was strong up to the day of 
his death. He found recreation in working in his 
truck patches, in tending his dozen hens, in riding 
his bike on errands. The hand that wrote those last 
lines of the article, "The Eschatology of Menno 
Simons" which lay on his desk newly completed 
when the call came was seemingly just as firm and 
steady as it had ever been. 

Father seldom talked about death— he seemed not 
to have death in his plans. In private conversations, 
in sermons, in prayers, he constantly spoke about 
being "ready for Thy appearing." As time for him 
moved quickly into eternity, his last audible words 
echoed what had been the great theme of his life and 
work— "Here we have no continuing city, but we 
seek one to come."

George M. Hosteller, 1883-1951 

Ruth Hostetler 



In the passing of George M. Hostetler, the church 
lost another faithful leader. He served for eleven 
years as minister of the Holly Grove Mennonite 
Church, Westover, Md., and for over eighteen years 
as bishop. 

In July, 1914, he was ordained to the ministry at 
Oyster Point, Va., where he served the Providence 
Mennonite Church until September, 1922. He then 
moved to Westover, Md., where he served the Holly 
Grove Mennonite Church with Amos Ogburn, Aaron 
Mast, and Roy Payne under the oversight of John 
S. Mast. On Sept. 17, 1933, he was ordained by- 
John S. Mast to the office of bishop at Holly Grove, 
where he served until his death. 

He was born Dec. 2, 1883, near Allensville, Pa., 
and died Dec. 22, 1951, at the Peninsula General 
Hospital, Salisbury, Md. He grew to manhood near 
West Liberty, Ohio. On Oct. 31, 1901, he had a very 
clear conversion experience. On Sept. 5, 1911, he 
married Mary Belle Smucker. They spent the 
first year of their married life at Hesston, Kans. 
Following this they spent about a year and a half 
at the Canton Mennonite Mission, Canton, Ohio. 
Ten children were born into the home. 

Brother George was of an unassuming disposition, 
always kind and considerate of others, a wise 
counselor, a sympathetic friend to all, and leader of 
his people. He never was so taken up with material 
things that he could not lay them aside to give 
counsel, sympathy, comfort, or whatever was needed 
to help others. His words and life gave courage and 
strength to many. 

He was a staunch defender of our faith. He be- 
lieved, lived, and taught simplicity and nonconform- 
ity. He was a great help to our young men of draft 
age, giving counsel and advice, helping them to 
understand the problems they were facing. 

He had a burden for his people. When difficulties 
and trouble arose among them, he spent many 
sleepless nights in prayer, concerned for their 
restoration and peace. He was an earnest student 
of the Bible, a deep thinker, and a much appreciated 
teacher. I have never heard anyone explain more 
clearly the great truths of the Bible. When he read 
the Scriptures he read clearly and distinctly so that 
everyone could hear and understand what he was 
reading. 

He was deeply interested in the work of our con- 
ference and always attended when possible. He was 




George M. Hostetler 



present at the Ohio and Eastern A.M. Joint Con- 
ference at Allensville, Pa., in May, 1951, and at the 
General Conference at Goshen, Ind., in August, 1951. 

He was a lover of children. He had time for the 
tiniest children, .always speaking to them. They in 
turn loved him. As our Lord, he would say, "Suffer 
the little children to come unto me, . . . for of such 
is the kingdom of heaven." 

His last sermon was preached on Nov. 4, 1951, 
at the communion service. He told us his prayer was 
that God would give him strength, that one more 
time he could minister to his people. And the Lord 
graciously answered that prayer. 

He was a great lover of singing and often taught 
singing classes. The last young people's meeting 
he attended he was asked to lead a song. His physical 
strength was waning and he was hardly able to lead, 
but his spirit was in the work and he led with vigor. 

As his body weakened his spiritual strength in- 
creased. He still gave counsel to our minister and 
deacon just a few days before his passing. 

The family have lost a kind, loving, and faithful 
husband and father, the church a wise counselor, the 
community a loving friend. His children have re- 
ceived from him a goodly heritage. His life and 
influence will go on: "He being dead yet speaketh."

Separated unto God 



Cod 




By John C. Wenger 



What does the New Testament refer to when it 
warns Christians against loving this world? Do 
Christians and non-Christians differ essentially as 
to speech, attire, recreational activities, organi- 
zational affiliations, attitudes toward possessions, 
and concepts of citizenship? 

John C. Wenger has produced a clear, Scrip- 
tural discussion of the meaning of separation 
from the world. He covers dozens of areas in 
which nonconformity will be apparent in today's 
culture, clarifying issues and presenting eternal 
principles along with their changing applications. 

A book you cannot afford to miss.

Can any logical answer 
be given to this 
tragedy? 

Yet Christian youth is asked to take 
part in war. What shall they answer? 
Answer to War is written in terms for 
teens to grasp. It gives God's answers to 
the problem. An excellent reading and 
study book for all young people and 
youth leaders.
